This is the group of women who had been forced to come out of their traditional roles due to various reasons.. They not only managed to break the traditional rules for village women.. but also set an example of honesty and hard work for others to follow.
In the village society, a woman does not go work for a living.. its a man’s job and when a woman was forced to seek a living in a situation where she did not have much land or other means of income, it was accepted in the society that this woman could make and sell local liquor (made from Gur or molasses). Few of our women also did this before they joined us, but today they feel no need to go back into that trade any more. Their stories are given on the pages link ‘The Bees HiVE – buzzing sweetly / fabricating lives’
